"Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Our work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer has helped double UK survival rates in the last forty years. Our ambition is to accelerate that progress so we see at least 3 in 4 patients survive cancer by 2034; the digital revolution playing an important role in helping us get us there. We will explore the work we’re doing to increase our fundraising impact through digital, how we’re opening up our research for the digital world to engage with, and what might come next!"

Free and all welcome, there will be a drinks reception after the talk.
